DNS Made Easy lets you assign different nameservers to any of your subdomains. This means you will be using two providers at the same time: one at the root level and one at the subdomain level. In this tutorial, we walk you through the process.
A subdomain is an additional part of your primary domain name. They are easily identifiable as they appear as an extension proceeding a domain name.
Here is an example: social.dnsmadeeasy.com.
In this case, “social” is the subdomain and dnsmadeeasy.com is the primary. When creating subdomains, you are essentially creating new websites under your primary domain.
For this tutorial, we will create the subdomain "subdomain.testerdomain1.com" as an NS record within the testerdomain1.com domain in DNS Made Easy and direct the traffic for this subdomain to Constellix.
Delegating subdomains to a third-party provider is excellent for testing purposes. One example would be for testing a provider before migrating an entire domain. Third-party subdomain delegation is also useful for testing delegation speeds and propagation. Another use case is for bypassing the DNS limitations of your current provider. Registrars in particular, often don’t support certain record types, such as ANAME, and lack specialized services.
For this tutorial, the use case is to delegate a mission-critical subdomain to Constellix in order to take advantage of its GeoIP Filters feature.
